A caddy at a course in Chiang Mai went with a course director to the Mae Ping police yesterday after she was left with blurred vision.
She was hit in the eye with a golf ball struck by a foreigner and is now unable to work as a caddy.
MCOT reported that Phairin Kanthawong, 56, is asking for 500,000 baht in compensation.
Phairin was armed with a medical certificate that said she had suffered corneal and eye socket damage that led to surgery and blurred vision.
MCOT said that if agreement could not be reached then the case would wind up in court as it was an accident.
Chiang Mai News in English reported that the money had in fact been paid in lieu of the foreigner being taken to court.
